The fates of an unlucky pig farmer, a feisty homeowner defending her property, a love-struck busboy, a disenchanted rich girl, and an American expat pursuing the Chinese Dream converge and collide as thousands of dead pigs are found floating down the Huangpu River, towards a modernizing Shanghai in Cathy Yan's (BIRDS OF PREY) debut feature. Executive produced by Jia Zhangke (STILL LIFE, ASH IS PUREST WHITE).

"A dark, quirky comedy that peels back the layers of contemporary Mainland mores ... Genially offbeat and broadly relatable." -Justin Lowe, Hollywood Reporter
